Memories are a precious gift from God. May you find comfort in your memories , and may "the peace that excels all thought...by means of Christ" be yours. (Philippians 4:7) Olevia Taylor, August 18, 2010 May happy memories of your life with Aunt Hazel bring you comfort and peace. (daughter of Clifford Wade Lumpkins, Bonham) Deidre Lumpkins Froelich, July 27, 2010 Hazel Owens was my beloved older sister and I will remember her with love, laughter, and hope. She was a funny, sweet person. She will be sorely missed by so many people. Hazel was always in command of her life--so positive and joyful. She was well organized and independent. About five years ago she planned her own funeral, even writing her own obituary. Arvella and i loved her so much. Ivan J Adair, July 27, 2010 Prayers are with you. Remember many stories my father( Jesse Lloyd Adair) use to tell of "the Old days growing up in Donalton(Lone Oak)" Will have you all in my prayers for strength & understanding Lloydann Jessica Lloydann Adair, July 26, 2010 Opa, sorry for your loss.
